Heat and Frost Insulation Apprenticeship

Heat and frost insulation work involves the installation of thermal insulation on pipes, ducts, boilers, and vessels. Insulators install fire stopping on commercial buildings including schools, hospitals and high rise buildings. Heat and frost insulation work also includes work in the parabolic and tower solar industries.

Properly insulated buildings reduce energy consumption by keeping a building properly heated. Insulation workers should be in good physical shape and have some on-the-job or vocational training. As the construction industry continues to grow, job opportunities for installation professionals are projected to be excellent.
